looks like you've been busy collecting stuff too, is that Nasco lichen?

Cheers

C'mon Pedro, you moss be joking  Huh  Tongue

I had a look first hand at Jamie's progress today, first class work and given the quality of some of the repair panels, it is an absolute credit to his metal working skills. I'll be the first one knockin on his door if he opens a panel shop  Grin

You just beat me to that one Pedro.Thanks for the nice comments guys they are appreciated.Not much chance of me opening a panel shop Glenn,I'd need to be a fair bit quicker than I am at the moment...As I mentioned,the reason I enjoy this stuff is because it's not my job.If you did it everyday it would become a task and would probably lose interest.More soon,Cheers,Jamie.

I'll pay that one stock, very creative, is it just my eyes or does that look suspiciously like an FB/EK ute on the trailer.

This build brings back so many memories. My FE was in similar condition. Youve really gotta wonder why we bother. But then I get to go for a drive and a play then I know why I bothered. Keep persisting, You'll get there.

Hi all,have got a bit more done in the last couple days,here's some pics...


Got the passenger side sill on and repaired the dogleg...


Started on the rear quarter lower section this afternoon...

Made up a basic profile gauge....


After some Leon inspired metal work,I manufactured a new patch for this lower section as Rares don't do these anymore...




Stitched it in and checked the profile,all looking good...

All welded and smoothed out...


Sill all finished and a bit of work involved to fix the leading edge of the sill where they fold it up (all bunched up).Hopefully I will finish the rear quarter tomorrow.More photos soon.Cheers,Jamie.

What metal are you using for the repairs Jamie, panel metal or something else?

Weddo,I have used "black steel" which is 1.6mm? for the structural parts (inner sills,crossmembers and lower parts of A pillars) and normal mild steel sheet (1.2mm) for the other small patches.Have since finished the lower rear quarter repair.More pics soon.

ok...... I've got a sheet of 1.6, a couple of 1.2, some MIG wire and a carton of palies. Do you reckon you could come around and build me a car?? Grin

Nice job mate.

Back again,I finally finished off the rust repairs on the left rear sill and now only have the little bit on the drivers side sill and the bumper lip to do then the shell is rust free!I have also repaired the original passenger side front door although I'm not real happy with it (it has had a couple repairs before and I don't like using filler).So far I have three doors and the boot lid basically done.Passenger side rear door,front guards and bonnet to do.I think I'll start dismantling the front end so it can be sand blasted while I'm finishing the panels.Then it can go back on it's wheels,Yeehaa!Some update pics...









More soon...
